P90X Classic Day 5 Assessment

Sunday, July 19, 2009

My first workout day on the program following my full day of working. It wasn't really that bad after working 12 hrs. I prepared myself and was ready.

emoticon Time to "BRING IT" to the legs, back, and ab ripper x. em>224.gif" alt="emoticon" width="42" height="42" border="0" id="emoticon"> more leg workout. Still a little sore from PLYO. This will be good. I will be able to work out the kinks and soreness during this workout. My legs did really good. The pull-ups were pretty difficult. I did what I could do with my iron gym, then used my bands. This was the discouraging part of the program. I will turn this around to be encouraging though emoticon Before I knew it, it was time too kick in the ab ripper x. I was a little off tonight as far as my numbers were concerned. I did just a little less than normal. I'm glad that Saturday will be the only day during my work schedule that I have to do this. The rest of the week I can "BRING IT" harder.

emoticon Meal plan for the day, there wasn't one (ROFL). I kind of made it up as the day went along. It mostly consisted of left overs. Which was good. I hate wasting food. So far, I haven't had anything spoil on me. It is really getting close though. I'm sure on Day 6, I will have to look at everything in the fridge and see what needs to be cooked quickly. So basically, this is where I jump off the tracks with the recommended P90X meal plan. I agree with the team about the calorie intake. I do think the recommendations are too much. Personally, I am going to cut mine back down to 1700 - 2000 per day. Since I have been logging everything I eat this past week, the total fat percentage is going off the charts. This is most definitely going to change. I am going to continue eating a lot of the food that is recommended in the plan, just not as much and not on the recommended days.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend,

    Hey, if I can do it after delivering babies for 12 hours, you can do it!! Not that we have one per hour or anything, but it's a lot of time on your feet. Congrats and enjoy!
